Check out Good life press, theres a new one out but not sure of title.
Amazon have quite a lot, but as I don't have sheep, I can't say which are 'good'...

The Sheep Book for Smallholders - due out by the middle of November. contact info@goodlifepress.co.uk.

Also look here http://www.goodlifepress.co.uk/forthcoming_titles/the_sheep_book_for_smallholders

This is probably the most comprehensive guide to small scale sheep keeping ever written.

I found Practical Sheepkeeping by Kim Cardell a good allround book (via Amazon).  Also have a couple of more 'serious' veterinary type books but would recommend reading an intro type book first (some bits in the vet books aren't for the faint hearted!!).

Really looking forward to Tim Tyne's book though and you should maybe wait until that's out - which isnt long now I think.

Tim's book goes a step further than most, and includes sections on spinning, weaving & dyeing; grassland management; slaughter & butchery; sheepdog training and also sheep dairying.
